A class of polynomial curves which is a generalization of the class of "Pólya curves" studied by R. Goldman [9-11] is introduced. This new scheme contains not only Bézier curves (of which Pólya curves are a generalization), but also Lagrange interpolating polynomials. Motives for studying this new class of curves are recounted and then the geometric properties of these curves are investigated. Surfaces are also briefly discussed.
